About

 

Let me introduce myself.

My name is Raina Delisle. I’m a writer, editor, and journalist with a special interest in health, culture, and the environment. Whether I’m writing a magazine feature or custom copy for a corporate client, I’m passionate about bringing stories to life with words.

As a senior editor at The Narwhal, I write and edit stories about Canada’s natural world.

I’m also a longtime contributor to Today’s ParentChatelaine, and MONTECRISTO, and have written for the Globe and Mail, the Huffington Post, and Smithsonian Magazine, among many other publications.

I previously worked as a reporter and editor at the Vancouver Sun, the Province, and the Ottawa Citizen and as a producer and news writer for Citytv’s Breakfast Television.

I have won several national journalism awards, including honourable mention for best investigative story for my feature The Ecolabel Fable at the 2018 National Magazine Awards.

Prior to my journalism career, I was a public relations officer at St Bride Foundation in London, England, home to an unparalleled library of print, media, communications, and design. I later took a hiatus from journalism and returned to public relations as a writer/communications officer at Royal Roads University.

I hold a business degree from Bishop’s University, where I was the editor of the student newspaper, and a graduate degree in journalism from Ryerson University. I’ve guest lectured on journalism at the University of Victoria and Royal Roads University and appeared on radio and television to discuss my stories.

I’m also a certified copyeditor through Editors Canada.
